Journey to Spain, 4/27-5/3/11 - Adventures with My Good Luck Charm & Travel Partner, Hazel

This Entry is all about Hazel's Adventures
Who is Hazel?
Here is the link to my original posting about Hazel, my good luck charm and travel partner, a collectible Salt & Pepper shaker from a very cool little cafe called LouLou's Griddle in the Middle, Fisherman's Wharf, Monterey, CA.

The following is a photo montage of the various adventures that Hazel shared with me during my recent trip to Spain, where we volunteered at Scooby Medina del Campo, and picked up my adopted Galgo (Spanish Greyhound), Bless.  Enjoy! :-)

Dear LouLou's
Thank you for loaning me Hazel!  I'll soon return her to her rightful place on the shelf in your lovely restaurant.  However, we have a dilemma...  One of my friends would like to take her to Central America for some volunteer work, in August.  I would like to take her on my next trip, which is a Mediterranean cruise (Spain, France, Italy, Croatia), which is also in August. Which do you think she would prefer? Volunteer work or rest and relaxation?  Perhaps you could put this to a vote with your staff and customers? ;-)

Does she have a bad side?

These Lovely Dogs Almost Knocked Over the Lovely Hazel, so I had to Move Her Away :-(
The Galgos are Most Curious about Hazel. Is she edible?

You can read more about our journey home to California in this blog. Met a travel mate, who sat next to me on the plane. He brought a sock monkey that was his good luck charm on his trip from England to California. You see, it's becoming quite chic to take some sort of fun object on your travels to share in the adventure, take photos of, and to join in the fun! ;-)

More to follow.
Thank you for reading my blog!

Please support Scooby.

Hasta Luego!

My Adopted Galgo, Bless

  1. I love reading the story, as a huge animal lover it warms my heart. Your good luck charm cracks me up totally. My niece takes a virgin mary staue all over and has pictures of it. I love it!
    I am thrilled for your newest memeber of the family ... I bet she is even more thrilled to be spoiled by you.
